Do you know if the stock Rubi LCA's are longer than a stock Sport or the same?
I believe they are the same. The shocks and springs are different.

Well my phone had delayed showing the previous message.

Got it done this weekend and I’m very happy with it. I got about an inch front and rear (no spacers, just the springs, shocks and longer Mopar lower control arms) and it drives great. A buddy helped me and it took about 7 hours total. We’re very methodical and had to break it up over two days due to other commitments. The hardest part was probably breaking the LCA bolts loose. We did overtorque everything and had to back and redo that part. We confused Nm with ft. lbs and didn’t figure it out until we started to torque the LCAs. These are the part numbers and I’m not sure if they came off a soft or hardtop Rubicon etc:

Springs

Front driver 68253659AD
Front passenger 68253660AD
Rear driver 68253590AA
Rear passenger 68253591AA

Shocks

Front P68330209AB
Rear P68330210AA

The before/after pics aren’t the best as the before pic is with 245s and after is with 285s. Also, Plasti-dip doesn’t hold up well to tire swaps. Thanks very much for the advice on this stuff guys, especially the LCA advice!

Stock Rubi LCAs are the same part number as sport trim levels. I got the set with Rubi takeoff suspension and they were identical.
